Hello former neighbors!

Family relocated to Seattle. We are obtaining insuarnce for our vehicle but are running in to a problem concerning which number on the DL is the actual license number for purposes of dl history abstracts.

Does anyone know with certainty if it is the CI or DD number?

TIA!!

Hey Onika --

On my license it is the number that starts with a T, is followed by a dash, then the number of the month the license was issued, then the full year the license was issued, and then some additional numbers. I was told that STX licenses start with a C and STJ Licenses with a J. I know nothing about CI or DD numbers.

On the new license it doesn't start with a T or C or J. When I speak of 'new', it is a license issued in CY 09.

I should have known this would not be an easy task. 😉

FYI, based on dnt's guidelines, it looks like on our licenses it is the DD number, which starts with a C, then a dash, then month and CY of issue then some extra numbers.

Thanks all for your help!

Huh ? the second number on the license ?
I have CI and DD ....
What in the wide wide world do those MEAN,,,, anyone know ?

This always confused me too - but when I'm in the states I use my stateside license anyways. (got a duplicate after having to hand it over to the VI, which is NOT right,,,,, but I won't go there)

The second one would men second. Ok, the one on the right. There are twoo numbers on the license, they both have a bunch of zeros, I was told that the second one, the one on the right, is the number.

Hey .guys, this is part of the lighter side of island living. You have to admit it's hysterical that we dont' all know how to locate our driver's license number...or is that driving license number??? Some say one, some say the other. I've never been able to figure it out, but I THINK is the DD #.

I don't know. Everytime I moved from one state to another and registered they insisted on taking the prior state license (or punching a hole in it in one case and then letting you keep it.) I don't think many (any?) states allow you to have multiple state drivers licenses.

I understood Suzette to be saying that she lied and said her stateside license was misplaced in order to obtain a duplicate, even though the stateside license had been taken here in exchange for a VI license. State to state that is harder, because most states have the technology to inform other states when a license has been exchanged, and I believe the VI has that capability now too..

I don't know if it's accurate but I was told BMV mails your old state license back to the state so they can be sure to cancel. If so I can imagine one might have a problem if pulled over in the states with their replacement license when they find it was suspended.

Like many things, they don’t bother to do it. Unfortunately, the other state was most likely never notified.
